Paddy Davitt delivers his Hull verdict after Norwich City's 2-1 Championship defeat.

Dean Smith and his squad need to change the record. Another bright start that failed to yield any goals. Then another soft, self-inflicted concession late in the first half.

Marcelino Nunez's brilliant free kick did spark a late onslaught from the visitors. Aston Villa loanee Jacob Ramsey blew a golden chance to level when he skied over from inside the six yard box, but one point from the opening nine is a poor return. 

Paddy reflected on Smith's post-match comments on whether there is any Premier League relegation hangover, the magnificent Nunez, another toxic twist to the left back injury curse and the reassuring presence of Kenny McLean.
